  The Straight Dope: Is it true turtles breathe through their butts?
Of these the most remarkable, which some turtles share with dragonfly nymphs, sea cucumbers, and certain televangelists, is the ability to breathe through one's butt.
Up to 68 percent of the turtle's oxygen uptake is accomplished through the cloacal bursae, so it rarely needs to come to the surface to bask or breathe.
Cecil's latest gift to mankind, Triumph of the Straight Dope, is in the bookstores now and can also be ordered on-line at the Straight Dope On-Line Store.

Though the Captain Cecil has been seen dockside for most of the past week, it is free to go out fishing, says NOAA, so long as the illegal equipment – the sewn-up TEDs – has been removed.
That’s to allow turtles time to come in from the cold offshore waters and set up their residence in the relatively warmer waters of Pamlico Sound.
The ban means less chance of the turtles getting tangled in nets on their way to their winter habitat.

 FoodTale: TURTLES & TERRAPINS
The precious ingredient was not turtle meat, however--which was served as a proper turtle steak; rather, it was the 6 to 8 pounds of gelatinous material from under the top and bottom shells.
Turtle meat was proscribed in Leviticus 11:29--"These also shall be unclean unto you...the weasel, and the mouse, and the tortoise after his kind"--but Catholic monks, later, were to welcome this permissible "meat" to their Lenten tables.
The huge marine green sea turtle was around when dinasaurs were--but stayed relatively immune to predators until Man got so clever with his tools...and until Man and land animals developed such an appetite for turtle eggs, which are always laid on land beaches and so can be dug up and eaten, thus destroying future generations.

 A Diet Summary for Sliders - TT - Turtle Forums
I say this mainly because some turtles, especially ones exposed to a pellet-only diet for some time, can refuse other foods, so feeding a pellet only meal could, in my opinion can trigger them to refuse other foods.
Plant matter should be offered at every feeding even if the turtle refuses to eat it, and having a source of plants in the tank does little harm.
Turtles seems to have problem when fed too much; they get parymading, when their shells don't grow as quickly as their bodies because of lack of calcium and too much protein.

 The Straight Dope Mailbag: The Straight Dope Mailbag: Do female turtles shed one tear for each egg they lay?   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-14)
If you're talking about a sea turtle, then she does cry, but not "a single tear for every egg." It's more like a slow and continual leakage the entire time she's out of the water, though if she blinks, it might produce a well-defined "tear" each time.
Like many marine vertebrates, sea turtles have problems with salt balance, and they "cry" constantly to help excrete excess salt.
Cecil's Mailbag is researched and written by members of the Straight Dope Science Advisory Board, Cecil's online auxiliary.

In addition to running Turtle Transit, Belyea and Mulcahy co-own Jackrabbit Design, a traditional design agency, while Riseborough runs Alternative F/X, a company that produces themed events and 3-D graphics, both out of the Boston headquarters of Turtle Transit.
They came up with the name Turtle Transit because, "we wanted something with some playfulness--turtles are slow, they creep along and they have a big back for advertising," says Belyea.
Cecil is a Volkswagen Beetle refashioned, or morphed, as the Turtle Transit team would say, with layers of sculpted foam and fiberglass to create dimensional turtle-shell detailing.

A fanfic idea where Buster would compete with a young turtle, named Ted, was quick to come to me. And yes, the name "Ted Turtle" is kinda inspired on Ted Turner's, even thought there is no particular reason to it other that it sounded right.
I wanted Buster from the beginning to race against Ted, but I was considering what kind role Babs could have on the story — after all, even if it's not canon, "Babsie on Board" is a very good fanfic, and a funny addiction on the personality of the pinky one.
